Protecting oneself from scams.
Take precautions when you get the call out of blue. Calls, text messages, or emails, should be taken with caution. The scammer may know your basic details from different sources do not mean he is genuine.
Scammers usually do not give you time to ponder over your decision. They expect you to take action quickly. Genuine firms will give you time to think. They do not hurry at things.
Never give your bank account details especially if you do not properly know the person who is calling you.
Check URL carefully. Scammers make duplicate sites virtually look like the original. Clone firms pretend to be the real firm with some minor differences.
Fortune FX Academy.
Fortune FX Academy coaches for forex markets and is supposed to be owned by Hirthaeprit Kaur Mann. She does not have in-depth knowledge of the forex market but has good contacts within trading circles.
The website registration contact is hidden since it is registered via Identity Protect Limited. It has no registered trademark on its website. Most of the details are often represented verbally. There is no transparency and some pieces of jigsaw puzzles are missing.
You will be paying a huge amount of fee for the Fortune FX Academy course but do not get the value of the money you paid for. What they are teaching by charging a hefty amount you can learn it on YouTube free of cost. They are charging thousands of dollars and people feel there is something special about the course.
If someone approaches you out of blue, contact FCA’s Consumer Helpline on 0800 111 6768, or +44 207 066 1000 (if you are from abroad). FCA head office’s address is 12 Endeavour Square, London.
